There is a composer called Kevin Macleod who releases some production music for free on the web. Its under a creative commons attribution license with no other restrictions. So you can use it commercially without paying royalties as long as you attribute it to him. Here on the archive you would just need to put "Music by Kevin MacLeod" and/or link to his website http://incompetech.com/. The royalty free music is his online portfolio/resume to get scoring work. He adds to it all the time and its all tagged by genres and moods so its pretty easy to find the right kinds of themes and loops for the movie.

Queen of Blood was renewed and is in copyright

The Strangler is PD

Ghosts of Hanley House is PD, but the Alpha video DVD is registered for new sound effects and visual effects so that version is not PD.

The Version of The Ghosts of Hanley House is the AMC dvd which does not appear to be restored, is this version also under copyright?

No that one's fine. the copyright was only on the Alpha version. The AMC dvd with Chandu is the raw original PD movie. All the monsterfest DVDs are safe to rip - they don't watermark or alter the films for copyright purposes.
